Hannspree XV37.

Cant seem to find any threads on this TV.

It looks very impressive spec and looks wise and for c?600 notes looks a bargain.

Anyone any experience of this set?

I've just come across this LCD tonight, been looking for a 37 set to accompany sky+ I'm having installed (can't wait). It seems silly cheap. This thread is bloody massive and I have got kinda lost looking through it. Just two quick questions and then I'll buy.

1: Does this set pixel match 1:1 at 1366 x 768? For a perfect Windows desktop display?

2: What would be the best means to connect my sky+ box, does it support RGB via scart?

Cheers folks, Joe

Yep from TV Scart on Sky box to AV1 on LCD. Great picture for normal viewing, appalling for fast moving sport.

1: Does this set pixel match 1:1 at 1366 x 768? For a perfect Windows desktop display?


It maps 1:1 at 1360 x 768, you will have 3 pixel width border either side which is not noticeable. The PC desktop image is great through HDMI, but I am having problems playing video from the PC, the image is juddery and the colour is washed out which I think is down to some sort of overlay which the TV is producing, and games from the PC are juddery also. This is the 2 HDMI E2 model.

Just to correct you slightly, The 360's HD-Dvd drive works fine on the original JT-02 model, The lines will only show up when watching a standard DvD through either the HD-Dvd drive or the 360's drive itself.

The problem only shows up when the 360 tries to feed a 576p signal to the set, Switching the 360's HD cable switch to the non HD position changes the output to 576i which results in a perfect picture.

Has anyone found a cure for the flash, or is the a firmware update or something? Been happy with this TV for a few months, then the other day I was watching "Narnia" with the kids, and the amount of flashing in the dark woods scenes was aweful. I had seen an odd flash before on V+ but this was just terrible! I might try another scart cable to see if it helps, but open to ideas.

MTS button? this button does nothing when I press it, also, according to the manual when you go to the sound menu on screen you can adjust the MTS mode between mono, stereo etc etc but no such option appears when I access the sound menu (there is even a picture in the manual showing the Mode option underneath the AVC option) my sound menu stops at AVC, can anyone else confirm if they get the same.?






Hannspree Xv37 YT08 : no problems, (unless this MTS issue turns out to be a problem! I haven't noticed any flashing even when viewing Sky.

I just spoke to Hannspree on the phone and it seems that the YT model is indeed meant to give you 1:1 at it's native res and my set is faulty. They are going to swap it as a result.

I'm still not convinced though as the lady I spoke to seemed to be customer service rather than a tech person as she was getting her info from a product sheet rather than actual knowledge of the product.

I asked if I could swap it for a JT model but she said that would require authorisation from a higher power. I think I'll mention it again when I email my invoice to her, at least as an option if the YT they send doesn't get me the native res either.

Would still like some confirmation from a YT owner that they can the native res though, so I can be sure.

Yes, plenty of Hyundai's too (Just couldn't remember the name so didn't post it).

Having been in environment where any car you get is by 1 of about 4 Manufacturers and it has to be in Black, White or Silver...you're an outcast if you have any other colour it seems, I really relish the choice we have in UK...and that goes for TV's and everything else too! Mind you, I wouldn't have any qualms getting a Korean Motor (some of them are pretty neat), I just couldn't bring myself to consider LG or Samsung for a TV...but then I ended up with a Hannspree (Taiwanese) that has an LG Screen!...and I couldn't be happier!!...I guess I'm just complicated

Sounds like the same woman I spoke to, she would not allow me to switch screens but they are going to collect and exchange a new one tomorrow. Said had one in stock. Did they say that had no stock left when you spoke to them?

This confuses me. I have a statement with them saying that they only carry the JT Model as they think it is superior. We have to be careful about the impartiality of information. It suggests that they took the risk of overstocking an older product and it has paid off for them.

My second email from Intekx counter-claims they said that (they are saying that the JT is superior).

There's no evidence that the 37" YT model is inferior to the 37" JT model. It is just that some owners of the YT model can't get the max resolution of 1360x768 on the VGA or DVI->HDMI, yet! (And also issues of flashing with Sky!)

The 37" JT is also not a perfect beast: http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=507007

They JT will be superior until they have shifted their current stock or ran round and got all the JT's they can. You will find that once they are gone the YT08 will be better than sliced bread. Marketing IMHO.

We need to bottom out the 1:1 pixel mapping. I also assume that Inekx and Teleland should be liasing with the manufacturers to see if there are any generic isssues.

Does anyone have the capability to try the 1:1 mapping on the YT08 ?

MMMmm well that begs the question....what is the native res for a YT08.

SONT Thanks for showing us that other thread. We need to be on this 1:1 mapping. It is becoming confusing.

It is either - both support it - one of them support it - or it takes technical tweaking to achieve it in either or both models ????

My JT turned up today, but apart from a quick check for dead/stuck pixels (none thankfully) I haven't had chance to play about with it

I use the Omega drivers. You can download the latest omega drivers from here they are much more flexible then the default ones.

Be sure to uninstall your current ones first, you may need to restart your computer.

OK it appears to support it looking in catalyst but again it says maximum supported is 1280 x 1024 and 85hz.

I have right clicked in the windows desktop and it gives me option to go to 1360 x 768 (struggling to make it out for some reason?). When I apply at this the screen blanks out to blue and a message comes up "not supported".

The XV 32” and 37” JT01-32E1-00G and JT02-37E1-000G are CPT panels.

All panels are of very high quality.

MMmm not too sure if I want to change my drivers. I had absolute hell getting BF2 to work properly and it took me a long time to get it sorted.

Regardless I have quickly gone through the setting i.e. right click in desktop properties display and there appears to only be a few that work. All the others got to blue screen with not support coming up.

I have it AIW 9800PRO Connected via vga although I have had to use an addaptor on the PC DVI output

I can't understand why you can't get it to display this way, yet I can. What are you running. Surely this must be a limitation of you PC rather than the TV. Or you have something setup differently.

hi

just to clarify my problem in aid of someone helping me.

xbox 360 (component) - fullscreen with no border

xbox 360 (component) DVD - fullscreen with no border

Media pc (vga) Desktop (1280x1024) - fullscreen with no border

Media pc (vga) tv (in media center) - tv image with 2 inch border top/bottom with slight border left/right

aerial - tv image with 2 inch border top/bottom with slight border left/right

There has to be obvious reason solution for this as only having the problem with tv viewing.

Would really appreciate some help.

Hardly a beast but very capable of running a 1360x768 display!

I've tried this on an x1650 gfx card - no joy.
Through my lappy with its x1400 gfx card - no dice.

Either I'm some sort of retard or my TV is faulty imo.

You probably tried this. But have you tried changing the aspect ratio? That's the only way I can get the borders up watching tv.

Well he was saying that the YT is the better of the two (it does have a better viewing angle and there's some debate over its specs). I'm under the impression that the JT is better though, like you say.

No, World of War the tv series.

Having read up on the Distance Selling Regs it seems that I have 7 working days to return. Luckily it's been a bank holiday and a weekend since I got the TV so I'm covered if I wish to return it. Bit of a pain having to cover the cost of delivery but what can you do?

I think I'll talk to Teleland tomorrow, organise a return, get my money back and see if Intekx still have any JT's in stock. I really wish I'd gone with Intekx now but I smugly went for the 5 year warranty from Teleland.

I must admit that I somewhat naively assumed that LCD tellys were pretty much the same as LCD monitors and a listed res could be easily achieved. Having read up on the issue of 1:1 pixel mapping it seems I was wrong.

B.M.Hicks

Hannspree XV37.

Do some of these different models look the same. The version on telelands website shows a picture identical to mine. But I know there is a different looking version available. Is this the one with the problems?

bjnsharp

Hannspree XV37.

Unfortunately it is hard to tell if it is YT08 is the issue as most of the testing has been carried out on the JT unit.

My main issue just now is this flash between scenes. If this common to both units I want neither. Can everyone let me know if they notice the flash. In SKY is where I see it, its like it changes brightness between scenes. You wll see it dim, its noticeable so you should be able to quickly tell.

Also if you can all enter your details in your signature as to which model you have and any issues experienced. In fact as a personal favour to me could you state Flash or No Flash, ta much.

Who knows the issues discussed to date may be common to both units, its just that we havent collated the information or everyone has fedback properly.

BJNSharp - are you sure its the same the one on the Teleland is definately the JT model, no question. If your control buttons are on the top of the unit then its a JT, if they are at the bottom right on the facia then its a YT.

Cheers

Right as far as I can tell these are the two 37" versions. This being the YT08-37E1-000G version:



and this is the JT02-37E1-00G version:



The latter being mine. So you 4000 have bought the tv from teleland believing it to be the same version as mine, i.e the JT. But they are sending out the YT which seems to have the problems. Has anyone else got the YT to confirm theirs is ok? I can't test this flash issue because I don't have sky, but I have not noticed it through my freeview box.

Seems you, Hicks and Malccy have the YT08 and have the problems. Until a couple more people confirm that their JT versions are ok. I suppose we can't guarantee the problems are with the YT version. But it looks that way.

If yours is the first one and you bought from teleland you have not received what is advertised therefore they have no leg to stand on if they refuse to replace/refund.

On the Teleland website the picture is of the JT and yet they are sending out the YT. Seems a pretty clear case that breaches the distance selling regs to me. I am presuming that there was no discussions between Teleland an d the buyer about a different unit being sent out. Certainly seems to be some problems with the YT model but that seems to be a secondary issue - you need to get back to Teleland and get a replacement to a JT model or a refund. Oh and tell them to change the picture on the website to the model they are selling.

Hannspree Xv37 JT02-37E1 : No problems.

I'm wondering about returning my YT to Teleland due to the black bordering whilst watching tv as nobody else seems to be having this issue. For a cheap tv maybe its a small price to pay?

Does anyone know what Teleland replacement procedure is - do they deliver new one and collect at same time?

Not been able to get them on phone this morning.

go down to the spec sheets and I think it tells us it all. I think the YT08 is only capable of going up to 1280 x 1204. Please somone else verify,
That's what I was trying to say in post #695.

The user manual for the JT recommends you use 1360x768 for the PC. But with the YT it only list the resolution up to 1280x1024. This means that, even if the YT's maximum resolution is 1366x768, it has not been tested for 1360x768 and so does not support it for the PC connection... (and I assume for DVI->HDMI too). This is why you are having problems getting the max resolution and 1:1 pixel mapping on this resolution. It looks like it does 1:1 pixel mapping for 1280x1024 just fine...

Have contacted Teleland regarding my black border problem and was asked to test tv through s-vhs to determine whether it was just an analogue problem. The border was still present until episode of Friends came on C4 and it went full screen but all other channels continue to have border. The screen image is terrible.

Then contacted Hannspree who are going to pick screen up tomorrow as well as delivering new one. They said they could not replace with any other model except model presently have unfortunately.

Are you going to be happy with a replacement? I would return the set as faulty and get a refund... Then buy the JT from Intekx.

As it is this is a very interesting thread even though I have already decided to not to buy an XV37.

The thread seems to be following a pattern I've seen before in consumer tech forums. A few vocal posters rave about how wonderful a product is and try to shout down anyone who dares to suggest it might not be quite as good as they say. People buy the product based on these "reviews" and, then after a little while, some of those people start coming back and reporting problems and dissapointment, a few at first....
....and that happens on every single forum for every single product, be it a ?5000 Fujitsu, a ?2000 Sony, or a ?450 Matsucheapie. So your point is?

ApolloX et all.
I think you place too much emphasis on the negativity of these forums. I use forums such as these to learn from others experience and practical knowledge of a particular piece of kit. This is especially so of items that are internet only bought. I have been looking for a plasma/LCD screen for 5/6 months now and have nearly jumped on 2/3 occasions (Evesham, Panny and Samsung) but on looking in forums such as these have seen a raft of problems (many DOAs reported, snakes on the Panny, etc. etc.) with most of those sets. They have been priced around ?700. When the Hannspree started being discussed I became interested as at the price of ?500 you seemed to get a decent LCD screen plus a stand plus a two year manufacturers warranty. Having bought one it is a very good set at this price point. I would suggest that it is no better, or worse, than LCDs and plasmas at the ?700 price point. Yes, there are some problems but I have heard of few DOAs and it seems that those who are experiencing actual problems on sets (as opposed to shortcomings) are getting them sorted out in a reasonable fashion. I think also we have to be careful about what people want out of a LCD - I want a TV, first and foremost, with a reasonably good picture from my DVD player and Freeview box. I don't want to play PS/3s' Wii, laptops, media centre PCs, Xbox 360's through it and hence maybe the Hannspree satisfies me better than some other guys.

All in all, I reckon, at ?500 it's a VERY good buy. If you don't like it when you buy it then return it under the 7 day distance seelling regs.

Can someone explain this from Intekx.com:

"JT01 - E2 MODEL (please note new model has 2 x HDMI and higher contrast but no PIP)"

What new model? Someone help!

OMG, another new model, talk about making it difficult to decide on which to purchase.

2xHDMI inputs may just put it in the lead now.

By the way, that is for the 32" not 37".

I do remember reading somwhere that the US Xv models come with 2x HDMI inputs so that must be what they are now?

I hear you, but there are many sides to it. In addition to not having any reviews from a recognised & respected professional third party reviewer that we can hang our hat on, the people who have positive comments on this set tend to have very few posts. And there is one who has accumulated more posts - but probably 95% of his posting is in this thread.

It aint really feeling rock solid. Positive comments or negative, this TV still has price as its main asset. But performance is unverified. Its a price play for now. A good price, but def a price play.

Thanks Gedd, the specs say "Resolution 1366 x 768 WXGA+", but the quality of the jpg. they advertise with is too low to tell if it has a matt or piano finish. Is there anything else from this url that would shed a light on it for sure?

http://www.teleland.co.uk/item--Hann...spreeXV37.html

Edit. Oops sorry in the description it says "Finished in a high gloss black trim" Isn't the JT the shiny one?

The picture on Teleland is of the YT, you can tell this because it has buttons on the bottom right.

ha ha.

It's been a while since I looked at this thread and I see I have not missed anything.

It started as a really good thread with useful info helping people to make a decision. It then got bogged down by people getting involved in all sorts of technical details that (I would suggest) most were not interested in. It's a shame they didn't start their own thread for all that stuff or (better) contacted the retailers/manufacturers direct so they had something concrete to back up their choice rather than postings from unknowns.

As I said before (but got shouted at), if things like that were SO important then the thing to do is to take your equipment to a shop and test it or buy (under distance selling regs) and send it back if it doesn't do what you want. Yeah, it costs you the carriage but if it's THAT important then it's small price to pay.

I am absolutely delighted with my set - it does all I want (Freeview and DVD's via scarts and straight analogue via aerial). Nothing in between, no upscaling, HDMI or PC's connected. It's worked straight out of the box since day 1 and I have changed NONE of the settings. For ?488 and a 5 yr guarantee from Teleland it's absolutely unbeatable imho. No problems with it whatsover (JT02-37E1).

Hope this is helpful to people looking to buy and bad luck if it offends people who want to get bogged down in technical details.

I will not be visiting the forum again. I have taken the trouble to post my experiences and have taken note of the genuine comments made in the early days. Good luck to all who purchased the set to watch TV - I'm sure you will have been and will contine to be be well rewarded.

Hi all, first time poster

I'm just wondering how well this works as a PC monitor as it does not have a vga connector. Converters from hdmi to vga seem to be ?100+ which really bumps up the price for me, so I may as well get a more expensive set. Is there any other way to get a good PC picture on this (or super cheap converter lol)?

edit: My laptop only has a vga connector, but my main PC has a dvi connector. Do you think it is worth just buying a hdmi to dvi cable and soley using my PC?

Hi,
This is my first post on the forum. Just letting you ppl know I've ordered a 37" Hannspree from Teleland with 5 years warranty. Using my credit card to back up the warranty. The tv was ordered at 15.11 today. I'll let you lot know when the set arrives and my first impressions of the set and Teleland
Regards

Haven't gone through this whole thread but am I right in assuming this set has troubles with the VGA connector? Both for Xbox 360 and PC? Also, PC use is poor on any connector for gaming and desktop use?

Can't comment on xbox as don't own one...but the other concerns IMO....just the odd few making a mountain out of a mole hill.

EDIT: Here's a quote from the Hannsprre 32" thread: got my 360 into it and it's barely any different from my Samsung which cost twice as much.

Wouldn't the 32" model produce different results?

Can anybody confirm then that this TV outputs:

1366x768 @ 60Hz @ 1:1 Pixel Mapping in all modes of PC use via HDMI?

360 at 1366x768 @ 60Hz @ 1:1 Pixel Mapping on VGA?

Both with no faults?

Duel

Hannspree XV37.

The 37" outputs 1360x768 but it is possible to get 1366x768 1:1 DVI-HDMI via powerstrip just by adding a custom res.

If the problems even exist on all set's there very minor. I can't even see them. Unless your looking for absolute perfection, I doubt you would notice. And in any case if you want absolute perfection pay the much higher prices.

Desktop and web browsing is absolutely perfect for me as is games and video playback.

Thanks for that info Gedd, do you know if that works at 60hz?

Duel

Hannspree XV37.

If I get this set I will be using a seperate centre speaker. Is there any way of finding out what the height is from the bottom of the stand to the bottom of the screen?

Basically i don't want my centre speaker to to cover the bottom part of the screen

Here's hoping.

Dvd playback was fine on my old player and through the PS2 both hooked up via scart.I'm now using my 360 hooked up via component but i'm still getting the horizontal line problem.

Anyone got any ideas?
do you get the lines when playing 360 games? and is it all DVD's/Bluerays played back through the 360. Sounds like one of the two devices can't keep up hence the horizontal tearing. Do you have access to a friends 360 that you could use for testing/comparitive analysis. it could just be the firmware on the Tv - which in that case it would need to go back i'm affraid.

Dosen't look bad at all.

Thought I'd never say this I may pick another Hannspree up as my son is clocking the hours up on my projector and these can be picked up for the price of a couple of lamps.

Has the tearing problem that affected the XV models been fixed properly in the GT's?

The only tearing is when you play 360 games which are known to have tearing faults.
I have been playing uncharted on the ps3 and on this tv the picture is amazing.
On a fast game like ferrari challenge there is no tearing.

Using a both a 360 and PC there was tearing over VGA although Vsync was enabled, I've had 4 TV's since my Hannspree XV37 and none of them had the same issue, some Xbox 360 games don't use Vsync or disable it on the fly but this is only a few. Component was tear free but that had different problems.

I am using HDMI input with both my ps3 and 360.
I have a samsung 26inch and an LG 32 inch,also the Hannspree 37inch.
The picture quality using the consoles is just as good on the Hannspree.
Its a bargain at the price when you consider that i paid more for the 26 inch samsung.

if i recall correctly this was a problem previously reported and the person sent it for repair. it indicates that there is something wrong in firmware.

that is an amazing 3890 price geordie, i paid just short of ?400 7 weeks ago for mine and i thought i got a good deal ! Trust me, you will not be dissapointed with the picture quality etc . I have been in comet and currys loads of times and have yet to see a better picture on the so called big brand names that are charging double the price for the same specs as the GT 03 37"

Yes i will do that.
The Hannspree is getting delivered to me on tuesday so i will set it up with the ps3 and 360 and will post my results.

At the moment i am using the consoles with a 26inch samsung but after seeing overclockers.uk selling the Hannspree at ?352 with free delivery to members on there forum. I could not resist the temptation to go for the bigger screen.
Then after reading this forum i made my mind up and ordered it yesturday.
